Frances Chesterton photograph

During a search of British Newspapers, Dale Ahlquist came across this and sent it to me. I discovered while working on the biography of Frances Chesterton that she had been asked to help found a club called The Lyceum for women who were writers or authors and who had attended college. Here is the picture that goes with that story! Frances has the fur collar (a frequent item in her dress) and is standing behind, second from the left, dark hat. The year is 1904. It was founded by Constance Smedley, sitting in front of Frances. (Click on the photo to enlarge and see it better.)
